National Electric Bass Guitar in Lincoln NE for $300

This seller appears to be offering a late 1960's National brand electric bass. I've never seen this model but it looks like it was based on the Lexington guitar line of the final period when Valco/National was in decline nearing bankruptcy. Not a lot of info on these guitars and they sometimes are found with Japanese made hardware.

From the photo, the action on this bass appears to be "through the roof" so this may be a project guitar. I'd be curious to get feedback from anyone who has played one of these or gets a close up look at this particular model.

This is a late 60's to early 70's Guitar, Comes with hard case but is not the original case. From what I've found these can be very costly guitars. If your interested in taking a look or testing it out please let me know. Asking $300 or best offer

  1. I own one of these. They are fun basses. Perfectly adequate, not spectacular. They sound great with a pick for a good garage tone, not a whole lot of sustain in them but in a good way. I paid 125 for mine and would never pay 300.
